spouse for timely.
• What the Gospel message is not
• 1-Saved by keeping the Jewish laws (Deut 27:26, Jer 11:3):No one
can totally keep all of the laws and if you are guilty of one you are
guilty of all.It was Jesus on the cross who removed the curse of
disobedience by man and nothing else (Gal 3:10-14)
• 2-Obeying the works of the law (Gal 2:11-16,Gal 3:1-3):Apostle Paul
had to rebuke Peter who behaved hypocritically by not associating
with the Gentiles when other Jewish Christians came visiting
meanwhile he used to associate with them before their arrival.
• 3-It is not ,“YOU DO“, it is “JESUS DID“ (John 1:1-3,12,14,Ephe 2:8,9):
Salvation is not based on human works, it is based on God‘s grace
through the person of Jesus where spiritually dead, like Lazarus was
physically dead and he could not do nothing.It was the life giving
words of Jesus alone that saved him,so also are we drawn to Salvation
only by Divine power (John 11:37)
• 4-It is not responding to a call to be financially prosperous,pleasure-driven,
burden-free, trial free life (James 1:1-3,Matt 11:28,29,Romans 12:1,2,Psa
34:19).It is the results of the gospel that gives these earthly benefits (Matt 6:33)
• 5--It is not the whole teaching of the Bible or the moral teaching of Jesus Christ
(Matt 5:1-9,Prov 22:29,Prov 31:10-31).The whole Biblical doctrine is however
necessary background to the understanding of the gospel message since God’s
unique plan is to reconcile mankind back to Himself..
• 6-It is not legalism (Matt 22:36-40,Acts 10:1-9,34-43).Legalism is the doctrine
that Salvation is gained through works. Stressing obedience on some moral,
ethical laws apart from faith in Christ alone produces legalism. The law of love
given by Jesus when asked was just a summary of the law of Moses and not a
quick fix moral code of obedience to salvation.
• 7-It is not enticing words of human wisdom (1Cor 1:16,17):Human wisdom is
based on selfish benefits to the human personality and not a life of sacrifice(2Tim
3:2,2Tim 4:5).Human wisdom will tell you come to Jesus and you will be married
;give your life to Jesus and you will have money for good car, you will have visa to
travel abroad; give your life to Jesus and you will become a billionaire; your
business will go international….
• WHAT IS THE GOSPEL
• *Good news concerning the salvation for all men
(Matt 18:19,20)
• *Good news that righteousness comes simply by faith
in Jesus Christ (Gal 2:16,20).Christ has redeemed us
from the curse of the law by hanging on the cross and
taking the curse of death that came through man’s
rebellion (Gal 3:11-14, 27-29)
• *Good news how we have been rescued from peril in
hell fire by faith in Christ Jesus (Mark 1:1, Luke 2:10)
• *Based on truth that salvation is by our respond to
the good news of a genuine relationship with God
through the faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16).The gospel
is not an advise but a call to respond to eternal life by
absolute faith in Jesus Christ, the son of God alone
(John 6:47)
• *Good about what has been done by Jesus Christ to
put us right into relationship with God (John 3:14,
1John 5:4, Col 1:13)
• *Testimony our Lord, Jesus Christ, whose appearing in
flesh, choice of death on the cross and resurrection
power has abolished sin (death) and brought life and
immortality to light to all who put their faith in Him
(1Tim 1:8-10)
Centrality of the gospel
• The gospel from the definitions we have seen has a focus on which we
must base our standpoint on .
• So whenever we say we are preaching the gospel, it must be the good
news of freedom from sin power which is
• 1-Christ centered
• Romans 1:16
• 1Corinthians 15:2-12
• John 3:16
• 1 Cor 1:24
• Acts 10:34-43
• Col 1:27
• 2-Cross Centered:
• 1Cor 1:16,17
• Phil 2:5-11
• 1Cor 1:23
• 1Cor 2:2
• Acts 3:12-26
• Gal 3:7-14
The Gospel Revealed by Apostle Paul
Paul reveals the centrality of the Gospel
• 1Co 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I
preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
• 1Co 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached
unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
• 1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how
that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
• 1Co 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day
according to the scriptures:
• 1Co 15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
• 1Co 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once;
of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen
asleep.
Challenges of Soul Winning
• Fear (Prov 28:1, 2Tim 1:7)
• Ignorance (Hosea 4:6)
• Persecution and mockeries:
• “And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who
persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the
city, supposing he had been dead.
• Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and
came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to
Derbe.
• And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught
many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
• Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue
in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into
the kingdom of God. ” Acts 14:19-22
